Jul 25, Paige Enchantology rated it it was ok Shelves: graphic-novels. Main takeaway from this: why is there not a single female contributing to a graphic novel following a female character? View 2 comments. Jul 21, Jon athan Nakapalau rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels , favorites , science-fiction , pop-culture.
A friend recommended this book. I found it a nice stand alone story that weaves a tale of action and betrayal. Mar 27, Justin rated it liked it Shelves: video-games , graphic-novels. So, shut up. Though skittish about trying this stuff again, I figured that this graphic novel would be a safe bet. The story follows Dr. Desperate to find what has become of Commander Shepard, she journeys to the outpost of Omega and falls in with a shady Drell named Feron, whose allegiance seem to shift on the hour.
This series of comics promises to tell the story hinted at by Liara in Mass Effect 2, and, well, it does that. That, and not much else. Liara meets Feron, throws around a lot of biotic bodyslams, and plucks Shepard from the clutches of the Collectors. To wit, she did everything she said she did in the few lines of dialogue on the subject from the game. I was just hoping there was a little bit more to it than that. There is definitely some extra material in the suddenly sexed-up rendition of Liara, however.
However, Francia's art contorts Liara into a centerfold pose at every Apparently, arching your back, thrusting your chest out, tilting your hips backward, spreading your legs, and looking over one shoulder is the natural and comfortable position one would take when recovering from a fall.

Liara is a bit more naive in this one than I expected her to be. Not so much in this one.. It has plenty of action and the artwork is great, though I do have some beef with the constant posing that Liara does but that is almost expected in a comic with a female lead. Jul 30, Silas rated it really liked it. I really enjoy Mass Effect. I have read a number of the novels, but this is the ghost graphic novel that I have read.
There is quite a bit less content than from the games or novels, but overall, it matched the look and tone of the game with some minor exceptions. Liara's outfits are more revealing than in the game, and the artist depicts her in provocative positions, which is rather unnecessary. Biotics are handled very differently, as well, with Liara using them mostly in martial arts moves in I really enjoy Mass Effect.
Biotics are handled very differently, as well, with Liara using them mostly in martial arts moves instead of the telekinesis in the games, which I would have preferred. Still, this tied in well with the game and featured stories of characters that I care about, so I enjoyed reading it. Aug 24, Terry rated it really liked it Shelves: gaming. The Normandy is destroyed and Commander Shepard is feared dead. However his body, regardless of its condition, is the prize in a contest pitting the Illusive Man against the Shadow Broker.

Reading like a space opera with a noir twist, the Dark Horse graphic novel finds Liara at Omega, a massive space station in the Terminus system acting as the dark parallel to the Council-run Citadel. The story is by Mass Effect 2 lead writer Mac Walters, making this more than a marketing tie-in and the art by artist Omar Francia and colorist Michael Atiyeh is impressive — especially the numerous action scenes and displays of biotic ability.
Nov 12, Peter rated it really liked it Shelves: sci-fi , fiction , graphic-novel. The plot of Redemption centres on Liara T'soni, and her involvement in the events between the first two Mass Effect games. It's interesting to see some of the conflict surrounding the recovery of Shepard's body, and how Cerberus was involved at a distance.
It doesn't cover anything particularly new in this regard, but it's at least nice to fill in some gaps.
*** MASS EFFECT VOLUME 1: REDEMPTION ***
What I found more interesting about the plot was the origins of Liara's enmity with the Shadow Broker. The extent of his involvement in the The plot of Redemption centres on Liara T'soni, and her involvement in the events between the first two Mass Effect games. The extent of his involvement in the conflict with the Reapers starts to become clear, but at the same time, you also see curious parallels with the Illusive Man.
The artwork is good, and captures the various races quite well. The style is certainly in keeping with the games, and there are various locations and references which are instantly recognisable. Overall, I enjoyed Redemption, although I'm admittedly quite an ME fan, so take from that what you will! I think anyone who appreciates the genre will enjoy it though. Sep 13, Sesana rated it liked it Shelves: science-fiction , video-games , comics. A Mass Effect tie in, set between the events of the first and second games. We all know that it was Liara who retrieved Shep's body and delivered it to Cerberus, and most of what happened on that mission.
This comic fills in the very few blanks. It's a lot less necessary than the other ME tie ins that I've read, that there's not a lot of added information. We do, however, get to meet a salarian that could give a krogan a tough time, so that was fun. Liara was somewhat out of character here, very A Mass Effect tie in, set between the events of the first and second games.
Liara was somewhat out of character here, very erratic and really failing to think her actions through.

I can chalk that up to grief, though, at least partially. Of all of the Mass Effect comics and books I've read so far, it's probably my least favorite, but I did still like it. Looks like I'll take anything as long as it's set in that universe. Shelves: video-game-novels.

While it doesn't truly add a lot to the overall plot of the Mass Effect series, it does bridge the gap of some questions that you might have after playing through Mass Effect 2. Such as, why is the Shadow Broker against Liara? All of these things are answered in this tpb. I don't recommend this for people who have not finished at least the first Mass Effect game. That being said, if you have questions about how Commander Shepard came to be at the Cerberus station in Mass Effect 2 or what exactly is it that pushed Liara over the edge in Mass Effect I'd suggest giving this a read.
Aug 18, Marlowe rated it it was ok Shelves: graphic-novels. Redemption follows the search for Commander Shepard's body, taking place after Shepard's disappearance at the beginning of Mass Effect 2. I'd venture to call myself something of a Mass Effect fan, and it's the story and characters that have always drawn me to the series as well as BioWare's other big'un, Dragon Age. Unfortunately, this comic doesn't have much of either.
The plot follows Liara T'Soni in her search for Shepard's body, but she isn't alone. Cerberus and the Shadow Broker are both lo Redemption follows the search for Commander Shepard's body, taking place after Shepard's disappearance at the beginning of Mass Effect 2. Cerberus and the Shadow Broker are both looking for it, too. Helping Liara is Feron, who seems to be sometimes working for Cerberus, sometimes for the Shadow Broker, sometimes for himself.
Pro tip from someone who has never written a comic: You can't have a triple agent in a page graphic novel. You can barely have one in a page prose novel. Who is Feron, anyway? But at least in the games they have some personality. Here, she just reacts to stuff while she models her skin-tight outfits in a series of spine-snapping poses. The closest Liara gets to arc is the hint we get from the title and a throwaway line toward the end - that she feels bad about leaving Shepard to die alone, and wants some kind of redemption by finding the commander's body. There's a cutesy little gag toward the end about Shepard's body being so disfigured by the blast that it's "hard to tell if it's even a man or a woman".
It's an obvious joke, but I'll admit to having a bit of a chuckle. Oct 29, Christopher Wolbert rated it liked it. Good background story to one of my top 5 all time video games.

Dec 23, Anirudh rated it it was amazing. Strictly for Mass Effect fans but man this was so much fun! View all 4 comments. Mar 15, William Johnson rated it it was ok Shelves: since-joining-goodreads , mass-effect , The Mass Effect universe might be my all-time favorite universe. With the recent release of Mass Effect 3, in which I have spent 56 hours since March 6th living in every night, non-stop, I decided to bone up on the things I missed. Redemption is one of those things. No matter. Sadly, Redemption is one of the few experiences in this massive sorry for the pun universe that has let me down.
Mass Effect Volume 1: Redemption : Mac Walters :
I mean, Kaiden Alenko whines a bit but you can kill him off in the first game if you want. I'm not sure what that whole simulation base DLC was all about but that can be ignored. I really found Zaaed a frustrating DLC but, once again, a small gripe. And Mass Effect: Retribution, the book, was a bit slow. All little let downs, yes, but not infringing on more then moments of my time and not directly impacting the story. Redemption, now classified as a disappointment, sadly decides to make many things canon and effect the story-line, or, at the very least, my perception of it, forever.
A good prequel or side story makes the 'real' or 'main' story stronger. Redemption decides to kind of make it less complex and more angsty. Liara, in ME1, is an intelligent, bookworm who is effective at fighting but it better in non-stress situations. Even if you like her in ME1, you can't help but snap at her constant wonder and amazement. Redemption takes this character, who will end up becoming a ruthless and effective universe changer in games to come, into a whiny, one dimensional screamer who kills anything in her way.
Not working. But since Liara spends the entire book hitting, kicking, or cussing at him, even threatening to kill him, I can't find myself ever really believing the whole 'I owe it to him' plot point ME2's DLC wants me to buy into. Liara has never been my favorite character. My female Shepard, Dana, was, at best, friendly to her but mostly impatient. My male Shepard, Avery, romanced her in Mass Effect 3 but I regretted it immediately because she was so fucking boring as a girlfriend in the game!
So Redemption's character assassination of her is sad and unwelcome. And not even the art, save the awesome cover designs, can make up for the poor story. The Collectors are pretty sweet and the artists have captured the architecture of the universe perfectly but Turians look like overblown, and barely pieced together, caricatures. The only Salarian goes against type and is a burly bad ass and admittedly cool. The Krogan look pretty good while the Batarians look like those goofy over-sized pictorials you get done at the circus or a fair.
The Volus weren't bad but humans and Asari, the most often seen species, were just blocky and dreadful. Besides Aria's appearance, some well drawn Collector artwork, and a pretty funny moment between two Turian Shadow Broker guards, Redemption doesn't have much to offer. Hopefully the second volume graphic novel, Evolution, will be better. It depicts the creation of The Illusive Man. Gesamtpreis: EUR 42, Alle drei in den Einkaufswagen. Details anzeigen.
